stays. it means paul ryan's budget is essentially irrelevant since they weren't able to get the majority in the senate and maybe more importantly i think latino voters made their voice heard loud and clear to both parties kóin this election and comprehensive immigration reform will have topriority in the next administration. >> you're absolutely right. the gop has to move to the left on the immigration. latino issues. black and brown voters emerged this year as power brokers saying white people cannot get together in a historic they want. you have to deal with black and brown people as serious at the electoral level. the gop at this point is a madman group in a modern family group. i stole that of a tweet of a strategist just before we hit the air. they have to adapt to thee right now. >> i think a lot of republicans, i saw it last night and today, they try to place blame somewhere and they're going to do it inappropriately. they're going to blame sandy, chris christie paul ryan. they're going to blame voters for being dumb and voting against their in
if he wants to get some things done. also really quickly. paul ryan. he now is probably the most republican in the country right now. even though he's not speaker of house. he's probably going to prepare a campaign for 2016, and is going to be in there with a bunch of people, including perhaps governor christy of new jersey and so on. >> speaking of governor christy, we saw him giving praise to president obama in recent days. do you think that had anything to do with the outcome tonight? >> no. but i think that enflamed enough republicans around the country that he's going to have to issue some mea culpas privately going forward. >> or maybe the new face of the republican party. you have bipartisanship. >> a lot of people say that's what we need to do going forward. even president obama needs to mix up his cabinet. >> they're always or the of token bipartisan cabinet proponents. both parties have to decide that the vote was so close they can't act like they won the whole thing. they don't get a mandate. hopefully, they will take a cue, and work together to try to get some issue
. now that those who believed in austerity have abandoned it, will paul ryan accept that the president's balanced approach is actually the better way to deliver economic growth? >> yes, and i think the comment from this colorful mayor as well as a lot of other european leaders should make both parties step back here. remember what the fiscal cliff, the prem m is -- the entire premise that it is based on in august of 2011, which is that we had to have deficit reduction to match dollar to dollar the amount of debt ceiling extension. that is a good policy if we're in 3% or 4% economic growth but when the economy is growing at 1% or 2% growth you don't engage in fiscal austerity. 90% of all economists believe in keynesian economics. the idea now that we have to be facing a fiscal cliff when the economy is only at 2% is wrong and is wrong for most economists' point of view. if democrats and republicans are looking for a way out of the fiscal cliff, this whole idea of having to cut $1.6 trillion in january '13 is just a made up number. it's an artifice. there's no reason we need to stick to
